After patiently waiting for several months, it’s finally time for Disney Villains to come out of the shadows and participate in the 30th Anniversary celebration of Disneyland Paris. Their takeover of Disneyland Park will start on October 1st, and it’s safe to say that they have never been so devilishly playful! With its spellbinding encounters, mischievous atmosphere, terrifyingly-fun shows and attractions, this celebration will be wickedly entertaining! And this year, two Disney Halloween Parties will cast their spell on Disneyland Park on October 29th and October 31st, 2022, until 2 a.m.!
A Spooktacular Halloween atmosphere
From the moment they enter, Guests will enjoy familiar Halloween time décors thatwilladorn the Park, including smiling pumpkins, garlands with lights, lanterns, friendly spooks, and joyful skeletons that are up to 3 meters high! Guests will also be immersed in the Halloween spirit in Disney Hotels, as they will be adorned with fall decorations for the very first time.
Disneyland Park will be home to many Disney Villains (including Maleficent, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, Cruella de Vil, etc.), who are already preparing to celebrate the season that will put them in the spotlight! Trick or treat?! Disney Villains always have more than one prank to pull on Guests… who dare to meet them! Plus, it just so happens that this year, the Royal Castle Stage will become the Disney Villains’ regular haunt. They will use this location to put themselves in the limelight for better… or for laughs! After making a noticeable appearance on stage, they will meet and interact with Guests.
“Mickey’s Halloween Celebration” Cavalcade’s Big Comeback and Even More
This year, Mickey’s Halloween Celebration will return triumphantly after a two-year absence. During this foot-stomping cavalcade, Disney Characters – who will be decked out in their most boo-tiful Halloween costumes – will celebrate the beginning of the fall season in a very festive and colorful atmosphere. Mickey will also have fun surprising Guests from his jaw-dropping “Mickey’s Illusion Manor” float, which will feature some playful spooks! The cavalcade will run several times a day at Disneyland Park.
This year, at nightfall, Disney Villains will have one last mesmerizing surprise in store for Guests: Nightfall with Disney Villains, which will take place before Disney D-Light – the 30th Anniversary celebration’s successful preshow that includes a drone display and Disney Illuminations. Their devious plan will consist of coming out of the shadows and temporarily take over Sleeping Beauty Castle, during a dancing fountain display combined with projections.
These entertainment elements will add to the many shows and experiences offered by the resort, such as Disneyland Park’s daily parade “Disney Stars on Parade” and the “Gardens of Wonder”, a display that features 30 art pieces representing characters such as Maleficent, Ursula and Jafar, which were designed for the 30th Anniversary celebration of Disneyland Paris and installed right outside Sleeping Beauty Castle. Fa-boo-lous!
Emotion-Packed Attractions to be Enjoyed

Will the most daring mortals be bold enough to trespass on Phantom Manor* (again) with their families?

Guests will then be invited to head to Walt Disney Studios Park to experience an exhilarating adventure alongside their friends inside the infamous Twilight Zone Tower of Terror*! With its impressive 13-story drop, darkened rooms and scary ghosts, this attraction will transport Guests to another dimension!
